Capital Market Review – March 1, 2012

March 5

With the volatility in the capital markets, I will be posting a monthly update on the current state of those markets.  The reports are provided by Metro Commercial Finance.  The link below contains a link to the Capital Market Report for the month of March.

A few of the highlights are as follows:

  • Lenders are slowly considering higher loans to value
  • Rates for quality projects remain in the low 5% range
  • We are starting to see availability of funds for development

The underlying theme is that capital is available for good projects and even for some more challenging projects depending upon buyer strength.  Underwriting remains stringent but deals are getting done and they are getting done at very attractive terms.
